Is pH Optimized Skin Care a Tool For Anti Aging?

Could pH optimized skin care be the next big thing for fighting the effects of aging on skin? We think it could. For centuries people have been searching for ways to combat the effects of aging. From skin creams to supplements to plastic surgery, the modern attempts at slowing aging range from various ineffective “DIY” methods to the greatest extremes currently possible with modern science. While science repeatedly assures us that there is no “true” fountain of youth, there are certainly steps that we can take to look better and feel better throughout the various stages of our lives. The Truth About pH and Skin The pH scale is a numeric scale with a range from 0…

The Top 6 Alkaline Foods for Your Everyday Meals

brocolli_small_wbg

Most Americans have terrible diets. Not just terrible, but deadly. Just think of all the chemical-laden, fatty, fried, acid-forming foods that are commonly eaten in the United States. We live in a “fast food” society and to eat healthy is most certainly not the “norm”, and it’s not popular with the big food corporations either. Everything around us pushes boxed foods, processed carbs, fast fixes, and all kinds of “foods” that might taste good, but offer very little in true nutritional quality… and are far more likely to hurt us over the long run. It’s difficult, because many people get caught up in this mess—eating a lot of “so-called” food instead of real food—and they do so…

What is the Alkaline Diet?

alkaline diet

An alkaline diet is a diet that focuses on alkaline-promoting foods, while reducing or avoiding acid-promoting foods. It is believed that following the alkaline diet will improve your overall health by balancing your pH and making the body’s job of regulating pH easier. The key to the alkaline diet is focusing on the best foods, and replacing or reducing the “acidic offenders” wherever possible. Some examples of “high” alkaline-forming foods that are included in a healthy alkaline diet include: alfalfa sprouts apples apricots avocados bananas beets bell peppers broccoli cabbage cantaloupe cauliflower celery corn dates figs garlic ginger grapefruit grapes green beans kelp kiwi leafy greens lemons limes mango nectarines onions oranges papaya parsley passion fruit peaches…

A new study offers some dietary guidelines for cancer prevention that will be quite familiar to those who follow the alkaline diet. According to Dr. Neal Barnard—the author of the study, president of the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and associate professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences–“Plant-based foods provide an antioxidant boost and help promote a healthy weight, reducing the risk for all types of cancer in the long run.” Here are the six dietary guidelines for cancer prevention{1} offered by the study, along with associated findings from the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine: 1. Limit or avoid dairy products. – “Consuming thirty-five grams of dairy protein each day,…

An Alkaline Diet Reduces the Risk of Disease

limes-small

The adverse effects of acid-promoting diets are many. Too much acid in the body results in a number of health problems, and increases the risk of disease for the individual substantially. Examples of disease risks associated with acidity include cancer, osteoporosis, GERD, and more. Since excess acidity essentially promotes these and other diseases in the body, it would make sense that lowering the acid levels in the body would reduce the risk of the same diseases. And this is precisely why the alkaline diet exists. An alkaline diet is simply a diet that promotes alkalinity in the body instead of acidity. In today’s modern world, consumption of acid-promoting foods is at an all time high. From fast…

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Inflammation in the body is normal to a certain degree. Short-term inflammation helps to heal wounds and fight infection. But when inflammation becomes chronic, it becomes a real problem for our health and well-being. Chronic inflammation increases a person’s risk of a number of diseases, including: Alzheimer’s diabetes heart disease stroke cancer and more… Obviously, chronic inflammation is something we want to avoid if at all possible. The thing is, it is a kind of “silent killer” because it usually goes undetected. First off, we should understand what causes chronic inflammation. The major cause of chronic inflammation is “stress” on the cellular level. This is most likely the result of things like: environmental contaminates/pollutants emotional stress poor…

The Acid Versus Alkaline Diet

veggies-cut

A lot of people eat foods that form acid in the body. Note that there is a difference between “acidic” foods and “acid forming” foods. They are not necessarily one and the same. What matters most is not the acidity of the food itself, but how the food is processed in the body. If we have too much acid in the body, this can cause a condition known as acidosis. Acidosis can lead to a variety of health problems. One of the most talked-about risks associated with acidosis is that of osteoporosis. What happens, in the case of acid and osteoporosis, is that minerals are taken out of the bones by the body in order to balance…

Lose Weight and Stay Energized with These Alkaline Foods

As we’ve already discussed before, the alkaline diet can be a powerful way to lose weight and feel great. A diet high in alkaline foods can help you naturally lose weight and keep the weight off longer than many of the “fad” diets out there. Alkaline foods are foods that help to neutralize acids in the body and lower the body’s acidity. A lot of times people focus on the foods that they can’t eat when they are dieting. Why not focus on all of the good foods that you can eat? For example, with the alkaline diet you get to eat plenty of vegetables. In particular, healthy dark green vegetables are great for you. Aside from…

Why the Alkaline Diet is Here to Stay

scale-sm

The thing about diets is that they seem to very frequently come and go. A lot of people ride the diet wave like a roller-coaster, hopping on whatever fad-diet comes along—often experiencing ups and downs in weight and overall health as a result. Before I go on to talk about the alkaline diet, let me say a little about these diet trends. They truly do come and go with every passing wind. Here’s an example of how these things can change: 25 years ago, the common advice was to eat less meat and more carbs. For example, if you were eating a plate of spaghetti, a dietitian might tell you to use 1/4 the sauce if you…
